    review ´ Kwaidan Stories and Studies of Strange Things Kwaidan Stories and Studies of Strange ThingsIn my country people say that fear has big eyes but in that case we can eually say that it has slanting ones as well Kwaidan then is an interesting collection of Japan weird stories illustrated with drawings of ghosts demons and other unusual creatures typical of Japan folklore and mythWritten by Lafcadio Hearn Japanese by choice and avocation in times when eyes of the Japanese people were turned mainly to the West and the inhabitants of the land of the rising sun seemed to feel only contempt to own folk cultural heritage For lovers of Japan culture and

    review ´ Kwaidan Stories and Studies of Strange Things Kwaidan Stories and Studies of Strange ThingsIn Japanese folklore there is the belief that a disuieted spirit one who has died still troubled by a deep resentment or anger toward those it considered immoral and malevolent such as enemies or murderers will not let go of its attachment to the physical world in a sense not having been extinguished or uelled by death; having taken such hostile feelings to the grave will be unable to rest in peace and there

    review ´ Kwaidan Stories and Studies of Strange Things Kwaidan Stories and Studies of Strange Things I have started posting reviews again at the reuest of my friends If you like them please take time to visit my blog also where I talk about other things in addition to book reviews I first encountered Lafcadio Hearn in an Anthology of American stories in a weird little story The Boy Who Drew Cats It was a creepy Japanese fairy tale about a boy whose artistic productions which were solely of a feline persuasion came to life and did away with a goblin rat As a short story it did not possess much of a literary uality IMO so it was filed away somewhere in th

    review ´ Kwaidan Stories and Studies of Strange Things Kwaidan Stories and Studies of Strange ThingsThis book is divided into 2 sections the longer one called Kwaidan which means 'weird tales' there are 17 of them and a shorter section called Insect Studies which is comprised of 3 different essays about butterflies mosuitoes and ants All the writings are from a Japanese perspective though Hearn points out where the tradition is even older and likely comes from an earlier Chinese telling In the Kwaidan section I was reminded of other folklorists who've done the same kind of 'archiving' for other communities The details in the stories may be very different from other traditions but many times the fears embodied in the stories seem the same giving them a universal feel Certain stories even helped explain the modern day Japanese horror stories and movies in which the spirit cannot rest because of a grudge it held at the time of its earthly deathI previously knew how much at peace Hearn felt in Japan knowing that here is where he fou

    review ´ Kwaidan Stories and Studies of Strange Things Kwaidan Stories and Studies of Strange ThingsNot what I expected This collection came across like the author telling me ABOUT weird tales than actual storytelling As a result it was really hard for me to get into any of them save for the title story

    review ´ Kwaidan Stories and Studies of Strange Things Kwaidan Stories and Studies of Strange ThingsA much in depth look at this book can be found here at my online reading journal; otherwise here's a brief lookI'm late to the Lafcadio Hearn party having only read two stories in this collection before picking up this book The Story of Mimi Nashi Hoichi and Yuki Onna which have long been personal favorites There are seventeen actual Kwaidan in this book and then a section by Hearn called Insect Studies three compositions that in their own right are definitely worth reading Ranging from out and out creepy ghost stories to monks roaming the countryside where various monsters demons and other creatures seem to abide there is never a bad note struck throughout the entire collectionAt seventeen stories I'm not about to go into each one but my favorites in this volume are The Story of Mimi nashi Hoichi Yuki Onna Rukoru Kubi and The Dream of Akinosuke All a
